CHICAGO (WLS) — Illinois Governor JB Pritzker announced new COVID-19 restrictions as public health officials reported 12,601 new COVID-19 confirmed and probable cases, and 97 deaths Monday.

The total number of cases in Illinois now stands at 597,849, with a total of 10,875 deaths.

The new Tier 3 restrictions aim to limit gatherings and encourage residents to stay home to stop the spread of coronavirus.

“Tier 3 boils down to this: if you don’t need to do it, don’t,” Pritzker said.

The entire state enters Tier 3 mitigation Friday at 12:01 a.m.

The new Tier 3 restrictions close gaming and casinos, theaters, banquet halls and event spaces, cultural institutions like museums, prohibit indoor fitness classes, and call on all workplaces to have as many employees work from home as possible.
